Changing it doesn't "fix" anything. If we have to pick something for the
short term, then I'd suggest this :

* Mandatory : The BuildRoot must start with
%{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}. The preferred value is
%{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-root-%(%{__id_u} -n).

And that's it for now. Let the real fix come in later.

Right now we have a _mandatory_ value which has been approved last
week, but already a new possible value to be ratified :

It makes really little sense to me to have changed this now. Can I
politely ask the packaging committee to reconsider this point?
